City of Sylvania is reviewing changes to the city's temporary sign code.
city is currently in litigation with a resident who believes its sign ordinance
violates the First Amendment.
Greenberg was cited by the city for placing an Obama/Biden sign in his yard in
July – earlier than the current ordinance would allow.
the ordinance allows signs to be placed in the homeowner's yard 70 days before
the event (in this case, an election), and has to come down seven days after.
council is looking to see if the code needs re-written to remove that language,
possibly allowing signs to stay up for up to a year.
tabled the proposed changes at their last meeting, to get further information.
members of council wanted some additional information…as far as possibilities
on how the legislation…should or shouldn't be worded," explained Kevin Aller,
director of the Department of Public Services.
information gathered will be heard at council's next meeting on April 15.
